Joe's Crab Shack is by far better than the Mayan. If you want authentic Mexican food the Mayan is not the place to get it, but the entertainment is great. I don't know who rated Crab Shack but my kids like that just as much or more than the Mayan. They love the food at the crab shack and I think the food is great too!
FUN AND GOOD FOOD TOO! – Sometimes a long line, but worth the wait. All the staff is friendly and willing to help with anything.
Everything I have had so far has been wonderful. Almost on a par with THE FISH COMPANY in southern calif.
The fish and chips are like what we had many years ago when I was growing up in Utah. The shrimp had a coating that was delicious.
Parking is a scramble at times, but with a new place in Orem and others, that will be better.
Ihave no problems driving from Orem to Sandy for good food.
Mmmmm Dungenes – I found Joe's Crab Shack a fun place to eat and the food was excellent. For someone who is reading these reviews trying to decide if they should go. Note that even the reviews that say it's terrible said that it was always packed, meaning that there are more people who like it than don't.
Loud+Overcooked=NASTY! – We took some visiting family to joes on a Saturday night just to check it out. I honestly think that the only reason this place is busy is the fact that it sits on Larry Land (a.k.a. Jordan Commons). The music was so loud that we had to shout across the table. Can you imagine the noise of several hundred patrons shouting over music and each other?! The waitress was too busy dancing to serve. On top of all this, the food was tasteless and overcooked. Shriveled corn on the cobb and dry snow crab that stuck to the shell=nasty. It wasn't exactly inexpensive either. Picture yourself paying $30 to eat a hot dog at Senor Frogs in Cancun during a spring break happy hour. I'm a fun loving guy but I'll pay the measly extra five dollars for some real seafood in a decent atmosphere next time.
So-so – The food was so-so, but expensive. The worst part about the place was it was too LOUD. The service was OK, nothing special. I'd go back if they cut their prices by 1/2, but this visit was probably my last.
